    You said I had it backwards, I didn't have anything backwards. I literally listed the actual numbers. They we're virtually even, which is true. If for some crazy reason you didn't agree with that and you'd like to make that determination yourself, I listed the numbers. In terms of the 2014...

    Your comment looks good on paper but doesn't add up when you dig in. The team rankings fluctuate year to year (meaning if you pick up a full class and place it in a different year, you net 2 different rankings) and are inflated by class size. The class with MR and JW was 2014, the 2014 class...

    This seems completely fair to me. I think in general continuing to win at a 9+ win/year pace will change the trajectory of your program prestige. Think 17 year olds - let's say they start to track CFB as a 5 year old so the last 12 years....the more the pre-2008 years get cycled out of...

    I don't know any OSU fans that don't want recruiting to improve. I do know a lot of fans that are focused on the results on the field, and realize the recruiting strategy that is in play has averaged over 9 wins/year this decade. It's been well established that to win regular conference...

    I think the equation is spending money to raise your recruiting above your relative expectations. So spending rankings and recruiting rankings won't be completely in sync, although the variance is still pretty small. Also some of this spending is for future classes, so there won't always be a...

    The Stadium article is excellent, but one glaring thing they missed is operating expenses (aka staff), and the growth of support staff. In my opinion that is where the needle is being moved a lot. People are expensive too.

    If you want more details you should listen to podcast below (prob should start aroud 19:00 or so). Have 6 years of data (CFP era) and how recruiting, wins, player retention and revenue all correlate with each other. https://soundcloud.com/tapedoesntlie/episode-19-osu-recruiting-strategy-talk

    In last 5-7 years recruiting has changed significantly. For years it was just about tireless work ethic, getting out in front of kids and making an impression. Like College Football as a whole, it's become more of a business. Now the best programs have large recruiting staffs - Administrative...

    If you want OSU to start recruiting better, you should start donating money to the Athletic Department. A lot of money.

    Knowles and Our Defensive Evolution

    For what it’s worth I asked Knowles in August if the 3 man front was their new base and if they were shifting because of success of other teams against the spread in the league. He didn’t commit to it being their base (which we know now is their base) but did say that they had to adapt and...
